My daughter and son-in-law rented out two bikes with trailers for our two and did the ride from Padstow to Wadebridge and back, which took them an afternoon. They all loved it and had a great time.

also note the section from Bodmin to Wadebridge is at a slight downhill incline all the way so its nice and easy in that direction. It will take longer to return !
